SEOUL, South Korea -Nuclear-armed North Korea fired an ‘unidentified projectile’ into the sea off its east coast, the South’s military said Tuesday.
No further details were immediately available from the South’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The launch comes just days after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s influential sister Kim Yo Jong, a key adviser to her brother, dangled the prospect of an inter-Korean summit.
But she insisted that “impartiality” and mutual respect would be required, calling for the South to “stop spouting an impudent remark”.
She condemned as “double standards” Southern and US criticism of the North’s military developments, while the allies build up their own capacities.
